I'm not named for anybody. My Mom wanted to name me after her beloved Grandma. But my Dad balked at the name. He loved Mom's Grandma, too. Just as much as if she were his own blood-relative. She was a wonderful, caring, precious woman.......but her name.......... well....it was just beginning to become very well known throughout the country, as the name of a very spoiled, ill-mannered, poorly behaved girl. And he was worried that people would treat me, or see me, as that girl.





So, I didn't end up getting named after my Great-Grandma, whose name was Nellie.

My sister played softball with a girl named Becky and she told my mom she really liked that name. I used to spell it that way, but then I changed it to be different. My real name is Rebecca, but I prefer Beckie.

A friend of our family had a little girl about a year before I was born and her name was Kathy, so that is why they named me Kathy...

I love the name Jacob. It's on my mental list of names that I might name a baby boy, if I were ever to have a baby.

Either is fine :)

Most of my online friends call me Rose.

I don't mind my name now as an adult, but it was sure a hard name to have as a kid!
I remember my first day at a new school in the 1st grade and the kids singing "Rain Rain go away!"

LOL seemed so traumatic at the time

I'm named after Vanessa Redgrave, for my mother had just watched the "Isadora Duncan's movie" and had liked it sooo much. I must go without the second "s" for , in my country you cannot bear a foreign name who has translation in Spanish. For example you may christen a baby with the name "Solange", for there is not an equivalent in our language, but you can't christen her as "Carol", for you have "Carola" or "Carolina" in Spanish.And since "Vanesa" exist in Spanish I must go without an "s", but in fact I like my name with a single "s". No; I don't have a middle name, and I am sorry for most of the people has one...bawling No

My brother was christened Maximiliano for the Bavarian King Maximilian, uncle of Empress Sissi of Austria...My mother has watched the movies with Rommy Schneider in them, and then , read a lot about this woman and his family. So, my brother must bear such a name. And, no...No middle name in his case, either. He used to pretend his name was "Maximiliano Martín" (for his closest friend was named "Martín"), but of course, it wasn't.

Vanesa.Huh?

I'm not named after anyone, although one of my middle names Joseph is shared with Dad.

And No Savannah, you ain't calling me Alexander Joseph.

My Grandmother was "Julia Virginia Davis Westbrook". So my first and middle is after my Grandmother.
